    Celtic face FC Astana in UEFA Champions League play-off

    By: Newsroom Staff on 04 Aug, 2017 11:01

  • CELTIC will face FC Astana of Kazakhstan in the UEFA Champions League play-off round following today's draw in Nyon, Switzerland.

    So far in the competition this season, Brendan Rodgers' side have already seen off Irish side, Linfield, winning 6-0 on aggregate, and Norwegian champions, Rosenborg, with James Forrest scoring the only goal of the tie in Trondheim on Wednesday night to give the Hoops a 1-0 aggregate win and a place in the play-off round.

    Now, only FC Astana stand between Celtic and the group stages of the competition. The sides met last season in the third qualifying round, with the Hoops going through 3-2 on aggregate.

    The first leg of the play-off tie will be at Celtic Park on Wednesday, August 16 (KO: 7.45pm), with the return in Kazakhstan the following Tuesday, August 22 (KO: tbc).
